Creating Different Views of 2D Drawing in ZW3D

2D drawings are the main standard of machining and checking parts. It's very important for today's manufacturing to have quality part information to go by.

  • Automatically generate 2D drawing from solid and surface models.
  • Automatically update the 2D drawing if the part has been changed.
  • Automatically create standard and custom drawing views as required.

Below are some examples.

Full section view: Can be created on both simple and complex shapes.

Example 1:   Full section view with a single section planes.

Example 2: Full section view with multiple section planes.


Example 3: Named Section Curves in 3D modeling.


In 2D a sheet,define the type of section view as named 3D and another one named Bent.

The one named 3D is used when sketch lines between 0 and 90 degrees are used. See following image.

Bent is used when sketch lines are beyond 90 degrees.

Example 4: Two intersectanting section plans to define the whole section

Note: The intersection line of two section plans must coincide with the axis of rotational part.

Detail view: It is used to enhance details of the drawing. Use this commmand to create circular and rectangular detail views from other layout views.

Broken view: Used to create a gap or break in a view using a pair of broken lines. This makes it possible to display a large part within a drawing view that it normally it would not fit inside of.

You will appreicate the ease with which you can create the many types of views in ZW3D.
